Mezcal Sour …OMGosh….

Mezcal Sour

  • 1½ oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1½ oz. Mezcal
  • 1 oz. Amaro Montenegro
  • 1 tsp. light agave nectar
  • 1 large egg white
  • Angostura bitters and lime twist (for serving)
  • Shake lime juice, mezcal, amaro, agave, and egg white in a cocktail shaker (or in a tightly lidded 1-qt. glass jar) until frothy, about 1 minute. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake again until outside is frosty, about 30 seconds. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a coupe glass. Garnish with a few drops of Angostura bitters (drag a toothpick through drops to create a swirly pattern if you wish). Top with lime twist.

Southern Favorites: Hurricane & Alabama Slammer

Hurricane (my Mardi Gras pick)

[…I just used dark rum and white rum but I bet it’s even better with spiced rum….]
2 oz passion fruit juice (welch’s makes a great passion fruit juice blend in a carton)
1 oz orange juice

 

Juice of a half lime
1 tbsp simple syrup
1 tbsp grenadine
GARNISH WITH CHERRY AND ORANGE SLICE

 

HOW TO MAKE:

1. Add rum, passion fruit juice, orange juice, lime juice, simple syrup and grenadine into a shaker.
2. Shake and pour into crushed ice-filled hurricane glass or other specialty glass.
3. Garnish with orange and cherry. 

Alabama Slammer (hear me out!)

My liquor cabinet is overflowing with stuff I only used once and I can’t keep buying weird little things to put in my craft cocktails if there’s no room to store the bottles, so my husband and I are doing a “liquor store challenge” and not buying anything from the liquor store for one year (ending this Thanksgiving). So far so good, but we’re only four months in…In this spirit (!), I’m trying to make cocktails with what I have…and sadly, I have a super huge bottle of Southern Comfort – not my favorite cause it’s so darn sweet! but the Alabama Slammer isn’t bad & can be made with a couple of different substitutes so you can actually make it delicious…here’s what I came up with…
 
1 ounce (some recipes say 2 ounces!) Southern Comfort OR dark rum (like Koloa, my favorite) OR whiskey (in keeping with the variation below)
1 ounce amaretto OR creme de noyaux (which is MUCH less sweet) OR a combo of both
1 ounce sloe gin
2 ounces OJ
 
shake it in a shaker with ice then strain it into an old fashioned glass filled with ice
 
here’s a variation I haven’t tried yet, but boy I’d like to!
1 ounce amaretto
1 ounce bourbon
1/2 ounce sloe gin
1/2 ounce lemon juice
 
shake it in a shaker with ice then strain it into a chilled cordial glass
